Lake Suwa Fireworks Festival諏訪湖祭湖上花火大会


This fireworks festival is held every year on August 15 in Suwa City, Nagano Prefecture, on the Lake Suwa. With approximately 40,000 fireworks, this fireworks festival is the largest in Japan. Lake Suwa, surrounded by Mountains enables spectators to enjoy the sense of the powerful fireworks not only with their eyes and ears but one can even feel the reverberations. Water surface starmine fireworks on the lake, and the over two kilometer long Great Niagara Falls firework display are a must see. Public transportation is recommended, due to anticipated massive traffic within Suwa City during this annual festival. This festival, along with the National New Fireworks Competition, held in September, are the biggest two annual events in Suwa City.

Nagano Main Areas


Nagano prefecture is an exciting mix of mountains, hot spring monkeys, and preserved Edo history. At the heart of the Japanese Alps, Nagano is one of the country's most popular destinations, whether in winter for its snow sports and the much-loved Jigokudani Monkey Park or in the warmer months for discovering the undulating hills on foot. For fantastic Edo architecture, head to the Kiso Valley for a 60-kilometer stretch of quaint wooden buildings that marked the Nakasendo route 200 years ago.
